Absolver 1.11 Update

Hi everyone!

We've just uploaded Absolver 1.11 on Steam and GOG. The team has been working very hard these past weeks on getting the 3v3 "Overtake" game mode ready for the Absolver community and we're very happy to share it with you today. As you'll notice, the Overtake game mode is still in beta, as we are still fixing some issues, but it is already really fun and we've been having a great time playtesting it at the studio! Other improvements in this update include 1v1 Private Games, a new Shop for equipment, weapons and emotes, full 21:9 monitor support, equipment color dye, as well as the ability to rematch directly from the post-match Combat Trial screen, both in 1v1 and 3v3. Complete release notes are below.

Absolver will be featured from today until Monday morning as the Steam Weekend Deal with a 50% off discount with the goal of inviting many new players into the ranks of Absolvers. We will need your help in getting the word out on this update, so if you enjoy the game and the recent updates, please share the news to friends: we need as many Prospects as possible on the plains of Adal!

We've also been closely monitoring player feedback on forums and social media, although we haven't had time to respond to all your requests and concerns. Sorry for not communicating a lot recently, but next week we will share with everyone more news on our roadmap, and the upcoming improvements that we are planning to implement to Absolver in future updates.

Thanks to all of you for your continued support, and please let us know what you think about this new game mode!

All the best,
Sloclap team

  • you guys are doing a great job with this game, and we all appreciate your constant updates and listening to the player feedback :smile:
  • I logged in on PC to check out the update and my save is gone.
  • Hello! Thank you for this update which is as usual all good and for your game, in a few word: I love it! :)

    A small suggestion about the "Matchmaking can now be launched from the post-fight menu in Combat Trials" option:
    Maybe a distinct option would be better, as sometimes you want to find a new opponent even if he wants to rematch.

    Wish you the best! :)
  • Thanks for the update, but why don`t you mention the extreme change of XP gain, both pvp and pve?
    And i don`t mean Kuretz and Risryn alone, sorry, but it was fine as it was before, but now you need a lot more
    time for leveling up and getting crystals. I like the update with the shop and the new game mode, but with the low XP gain now you destroyed it for me. Just my personel opinion. Its time for an Absolver break.
  • Really awesome update, but the balance in 3v3 matches always seems off... Firstly, there are absolutely NO close matches, it's always 5000 to below 1000... srsly, always. And this doesn't appear to be a coincidence since in one team you have two or three students and in the other three disciples (as far as I know that's pmuch the only way to measure a players pvp experience). I have been on both end of this but, as stated earlier, have yet to experience a single balanced game :/
  • Ok, just had an awesome streak of games that culminated in a 4980 to a 5000, balance today was absolutley awesome (atleast for me)
